Red Sox | Xander Bogaerts has impressive streak

Tue, 24 May 2016 12:28:45 -0700

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts is in the midst of a 16-game hitting streak in which he is 29-for-72 (.403) with eight extra-base hits and 12 RBI.

Fantasy Tip: Bogaerts is slashing an impressive .346/.397/.495 with four home runs and 25 RBI on the year. At a shallow position, he's one of the top options around despite the lack of power. Continue running with him confidently in all formats.

Red Sox | Xander Bogaerts handles southpaws

Wed, 11 May 2016 21:58:56 -0700

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts went 3-for-5 with a run scored and two strikeouts Wednesday, May 11, against the Oakland Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: Bogaerts continues to handle the twig well against left-handed pitchers. He hit .424 (57-for-156) with eight doubles, a triple, two homers and 12 RBIs with an .892 OPS against left-handed pitching last season, and is a must-play in DFS leagues when facing southpaws.

Red Sox | More patience from Xander Bogaerts

Thu, 05 May 2016 11:05:16 -0700

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts has shown more patience at the plate in 2016, raising his walk rate from 4.9 to 8.8% this year. He's also shown some more power and is hitting extra-base hits at a higher rate (86%) than any qualified regular.

Fantasy Tip: Bogaerts is quietly becoming one of the most consistent all-around shortstops in fantasy and real life. While his extra-base prowess is on the rise, it hasn't contributed in the home run column (just one), and you shouldn't expect him to hit for double-digit long balls. But considering his improvements in plate patience, the rest is gravy at a shallow position.

Red Sox | Xander Bogaerts working on streak

Wed, 04 May 2016 23:10:33 -0700

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts went 3-for-4 with a walk, run scored and RBI Wednesday, May 4, against the Chicago White Sox to push his hitting streak to six games.

Fantasy Tip: Bogaerts is hitting .458 (11-for-24) during his impressive run, and remains a tremendous fantasy option in most formats, especially in DFS play, while running hot.

Red Sox | Three Boston hitters are hot

Tue, 03 May 2016 14:16:17 -0700

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts is hitting .432/.519/.568 with 10 runs, six doubles and four RBI in his last 11 games. OF Jackie Bradley Jr. has hit in eight straight contests (11-for-30) with seven extra-base hits and nine RBI. 1B Hanley Ramirez has 13 hits in his last 42 at-bats (.310) with nine RBI.

Fantasy Tip: Obviously you'll want to keep all three of these players in your lineups, even though they're facing White Sox starter Jose Quintana, who has an ERA under 2.00, tonight. Bradley is excelling at the bottom of the lineup and is worth picking up for outfield depth in deep mixed leagues if he's available.

Red Sox | Xander Bogaerts likely to play Sunday

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 12:12:25 -0700

Updating a previous story, Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts (wrist) will likely return to the lineup for the series finale against the Houston Astros on Sunday, April 24, according to manager John Farrell.

Fantasy Tip: Owners already know Bogaerts isn't in the lineup Saturday, so he shouldn't be considered an option in fantasy for this afternoon's game. Although he is far from a lock to start Sunday night, the fact Farrell appears optimistic bodes well for an early-week return next week, even if he sits through the weekend.

Red Sox | Xander Bogaerts won't hit Saturday

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 10:47:05 -0700

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts (wrist) will not hit Saturday, April 23, but he will throw in order to see if he can be used as an emergency option on defense. He has strength in his wrist after being hit by a pitch Friday, April 22, although he lacks flexibility and mobility.

Fantasy Tip: It is probably safe to say that Bogaerts won't be able to start Sunday, April 24, if he hasn't been cleared to resume hitting yet. INF/OF Brock Holt is expected to see most of the playing time at shortstop while he is sidelined.

Red Sox | Brock Holt starting at shortstop

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 10:06:53 -0700

Boston Red Sox INF/OF Brock Holt is batting sixth and starting at shortstop against Houston Astros SP Mike Fiers Saturday, April 23. SS Xander Bogaerts (wrist) is out of the lineup after he was hit in the wrist area by a pitch Friday, April 22.

Fantasy Tip: The versatile Holt has been serving primarily as Boston's left fielder but has also seen action at shortstop in 2016. He would likely remain at the position if Bogaerts is forced to miss an extended period of time. Holt is batting .286 with two home runs and 10 RBI through his first 42 at-bats and makes a decent option in daily fantasy games this afternoon.

Red Sox | Brock Holt appears at SS again

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 21:49:06 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Brock Holt finished up at shortstop Friday, April 22, against the Houston Astros after SS Xander Bogaerts (wrist) checked out early.

Fantasy Tip: Holt saw a few games at shortstop last season, and might be available there in fantasy leagues with lax eligibility requirements. For most others, he has two games there this season and might become eligible there soon, adding to his fantasy appeal.
